*For Home Use Only
Lelit has outdone themselves with their Lelit PL60PLUST Diana espresso machine. This machine has everything the prosumer could want in a compact, affordable package. The results do not lie, consistent flavorful espresso with every extraction. This Italian-made machine has many advanced features including a professional stainless steel exterior, double boilers, a brass grouphead, dual vibration pumps and PID temperature control. This machine is perfect for the home user who would like a higher end machine without the high end cost.
HIGH-END STAINLESS STEEL DESIGN WITH EFFORTLESS OPERATION
The Diana is professional in function and in appearance. Composed of reflective stainless steel, this unit looks as impressive as it functions. With such a lengthy advanced features list, one would think this machine would be complicated to learn how to use, but the Diana is surprisingly easy to operate. Two power switches are located on the side panel, one to control the main power and the other to operate steam. The brew, steam and hot water functions are enabled by the simple flick of a toggle switch. Dedicated pilot lights are located on the front of the machine to indicate brew, hot water, steam and low water. Both the water reservoir and dual drip tray are removable for emptying and refilling. The power cord is fully removable from the rear of the machine to facilitate easy storage.
A sought-after feature on this model that appeals to many advanced users is the double boiler. Having two boilers means the user can brew and steam at the same, improving efficiency and thus saving time. This feature especially appeals to the user who makes consecutive coffee beverages such as at a house party. Lelit has cleverly composed each boiler of different material to optimize function. The brew boiler is made up of brass to optimize temperature stability and the steam boiler is constructed of stainless steel to maximize steam power consistency.
DUAL PRESSURE GAUGE
The pressure of both the steam and brew boilers can be monitored on the easy-to-visualize gauge conveniently located on the front of the machine. The top half of the gauge measures the pressure of the steam boiler (0-4 bar), optimal range is 0.8 to 1.3 bar. The bottom portion of the gauge is designated for the brew boiler pressure which is 0-16 bar with 8-10 bar being the preferred range.
DUAL VIBRATION PUMPS
Another impressive element on this machine is the presence of two vibration pumps. Each pump is dedicated to operating a separate boiler, this ensures peak pressure is available for steaming and brewing.
PID TEMPERATURE CONTROL WITH DIGITAL DISPLAY
Advanced users will appreciate the ability to control the temperature of the brew and steam boilers using the digital PID display. The temperature is easily altered by using the up and down arrow buttons located on either side of the digital screen.
BRASS GROUPHEAD CONSTRUCTION AND PROFESSIONAL-GRADE PORTAFILTER
A perfect brew is only achievable with a grouphead that is capable of maintaining stable temperatures, this is why Lelit has produced a brass grouphead as one of the major properties of brass is heat stability. Lelit has also included a professional-grade 58 mm portafilter with the Lelit logo stamped on the filter head to help attain that perfect espresso.
MULTIDIRECTIONAL HIGH-POWERED STEAM WAND AND FIXED WATER SPOUT
The steam wand is able to be maneuvered in various directions to accommodate different-sized mugs and frothing pitchers. With a dedicated boiler to ensure maximum steam power, users will be preparing the silkiest, frothiest lattes and cappuccinos. Lelit has equipped the drip tray with a special hole to promote dispersal of the steam and condensate. The dedicated hot water tap is fixed into place and is perfect for making hot chocolate and tea. It is recommended not to dispense more than 4 ounces of water at a time to ensure the boiler is able to be refilled by the pump
